    First, I just want to thank this community for making this a great site.

    So, after a lot of selfies and welcome posts, I reached my 1,000 posts milestone and almost 1st year anniverssary as a member.

    Anyway, from 2002 until 2013, I basically used my only 2 pairs of Juliets. Then my wife gave me a pair of SI Straight Jacket for Christmas 2013 and Ferrari Tincan the following Christmas. I started to search online for other Ferrari frames and that's when I found this site. After seeing what other members have, I decided to start my own small collection. Knowing that I am not a completist or a purist, it was easy to come up with a few goals:
    • collect just what I wanted to wear
    • get 8 to 12 pairs of Juliets so I don't change lenses too often
    • get at least one of each of the other X-Metal frames
    • get one watch for daily-wear
    Fast forward a year, I now have 16 pairs of Juliets, 7 XS, 3 Romeo 2.0, Mars, XX, Romeo, Penny, Half-X, OTT, Pit Boss 1, Pit Boss 2, 4 Splice, a few O-Matter/wire frames, and 10 watches.

    I am not expecting this collection to grow a lot more. I exceeded my previous goals and pretty happy about it. New goal is to trade up and will be looking to get a polished (and/or maybe a rootbeer) PB1, Time Bomb II, C-Six, and (maybe) another MM/HP.
